It is eventually discovered that a radiated bullet was fired backwards from future to kill Orion by an anonymous person. Batman and Green Lantern, Alan Scott gets engaged in an exploration regarding this murder mystery that puts them both out of picture for a while.

Final Crisis | Comics

Libra, an agent and minion of Darkseid, is sent to escort escaped villains from prison planet "Salvation Run" to re-form Secret Society of Super Villains. He managed to capture and then murder Justice League member Martian Manhunter by burning him alive upon encountering him during his operation. Dan Turpin kept looking for answers, leading him to Boss Dark Side and his consciousness took over Turpin's body. Nix Uotan, the Monitor of Earth-51 is standing a trial and Multiversal race of Monitors sentenced him a human existence on New Earth, while this helps Solomon's own agenda to progress.

To face the fallen Monitor Dax Novu, Superman and his alternate-selves were called in for help. Dax would become Mandrakk the Dark Monitor and he is a threat because he will feed off the Multiverse itself like celestial parasites. Looking for Secret Society's hideout, The Flashes Jay Garrick and Wally West finds Mobius Chair, which opens a Boom Tube. They witness as the Radion Bullet comes through that portal, followed by Barry Allen and Black Racer on his tail. Frankenstein leads a S.H.A.D.E. strike team at Dark Side Club, while the Evil Factory in Blüdhaven was preparing a body for Kalibak.

Wonder Woman ran into Mary Marvel, who turned evil and exposed her to Morticoccus virus. With help of Darkseid's much desired "Anti-Life Equation", a major change happens worldwide when he released it over Internet. Seeing this, The Dark Knight decides to use the radiation bullet to finally take down God of Evil by breaking his Oath against using guns for a greater good. He does so but only mortally wounding the Dark God before being blasted with his powerful Omega Beams that apparently disintegrated him on spot.

"Final Crisis" is a follow-up crossover comic-book event to "Infinite Crisis", concluded from its prequel and seemingly the last of line of Crisis titled events by DC Comics. This event took place in 2008, when writer Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, Doom Patrol) came up with the core idea of this story along with artists Carlos Pacheco (Bishop, Inhumans) and Doug Mahnke (Justice League Elite, Major Bummer) to envision the plot. Major characters from DC Universe like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman remained as primary focus of the story as well as threats as great as Darkseid and Mandrakk the Dark Monitor.

Even today, "Final Crisis" is still considered as one of the most important crossover events of DC Comics in modern era that has changed major status-quo of Multiverse timeline with demise of a few popular protagonists and it is the last major event which took place before the biblical "Blackest Night" event. Though these events took place in the New Earth reality, following the reality-altering "Flashpoint" event, "Final Crisis" has been referenced a couple of time in The New 52 continuity. It also suggests that all major events does takes place in all different realities with a slight variation of outcome for each one.
